About Me

Streetwear Graduate designer from Arts University Plymouth

Specializing in Unisex and Streetwear fashion. My university final major project focuses on fashion being the reason to live and get up every day and create and express yourself from this. I have found my purpose in fashion and i aim to bring confidence, freedom and expression to society.

Fashion is escapism and freedom of expression, it has helped me conquer fears i have been faced with and overcome major obstacles in my life through expressing through my bold, fun, empowering , colourful and graphic designs . It brings joy and confidence into fashion. This is the impact i want my collections and work to make, to give others the confidence and freedom we all desperately seek and to connect feelings and thoughts through clothing whether that be through developing extreme silhouettes or through surface manipulation and pattern.

INSPIRATION

FASHION IS YOUR LANGUAGE

The inspiration that sparked my work is from generation Z’s search for identity, freedom and rebellion. In current times especially after lockdown and isolation we have all felt a little bit lost and confused. I know for sure that from my experience that the challenges I faced created a massive strain on my creativity and my identity, however my love for Art and Fashion gave me a reason to carry on and never give up and therefore the importance of fashion is represented throughout my work.

This is the chance to say I CAN do this. I am strong, independent and I can overcome every obstacle thrown at me. When verbally expressing yourself becomes difficult. you always have your visual canvas.

MY WORK

PORTFOLIOS

DETAIL

. PINK . PINK . PINK .

Pink is a very restricted colour, sadly it has often been only associated with the female gender. As a Unisex designer the aim for this Collection explores how pink is such a versatile colour and it has no restrictions, its Fun, Bold and Confident. It expresses a new approach to streetwear and the colour pink, by exaggerating on prints, colours and combinations of fabrics throughout the line up.

TO ME, CLOTHING IS A FORM OF SELF EXPRESSION- THERE ARE HINTS ABOUT WHO YOU ARE IN WHAT YOU WEAR- MARC JACOBS
